    just had a quick look, mostly they seem smaller than 50mm. You might want
    to look at cheaper end spotting scopes or even the short focus refractors
    if they're in budget. OM-1 camera is a stalwart if the price is right.
    Personally I have an ancient Yashica FX-3 mechanical body, but these days
    everyone seems to be digital, not necessarily the SLRs either.

    Have a look at scsastro and maybe warehouse ecpress. Or perhaps 2nd hand
    stuff??
